J.S. Bach - Goldberg Variations (Rock Version)




Adapted from J.S. Bach’s Goldberg Variations.
This "rock" arrangement (guitars, keys, bass, and/or drums) was created by Ed Chang. This newly-rendered adaptation is a manipulated "SynthFont" derivation from a conventional “classical” transcription (in MIDI) by David J. Grossman

A project of The Daily Beethoven:

===================

Boilerplate: These tracks were created for my own use to better understand various classical works. As an electric guitarist, I "hear" guitar and drums better than violin, so these helped me to follow the different melodic and harmonic turns that these composers used in their compositions. Weird syncopations and awkward double-stops and trills on violin sound even more exciting in today's musical vernacular IMHO, and when you add drums doubling the bass melodies it gets pretty close to fusion/technical metal - tho the most complex metal you'll ever hear. Of course these are generated from "MIDI" sequences and triggered soundfonts (samples) so there's a little bit of an auditory leap of faith necessary. Have some fun and don't expect to find Furtwangler or Barenboim here....more like Zappa or King Crimson...maybe some Doors? Merzbow?
